TDK Backpack Pictures and info.


I find this item to be elusive and nearly non-existent. I am trying to find a good way to make it, and as easy as you might imagine it would be, I can't find the right STUFF to make it correctly while having a functional purpose.

For one idea, for paintball, I designed a "deploy-able cover" - a 4' by 4' canopy made of black nylon material that could explode out of a "break away" shell with spring loaded arms. The original shell I made was of sheet steel, and I still have it, but it doesn't help to have that much weight on my back when I'm trying to play.

Another idea is just a compact field pack. It would contain a water reservoir, much like those CamelBak hydration packs. It would also have flares and other emergency/camping/field equipment.

Re: TDK Backpack


Your gonna need probably a fiberglass one. Its gonna be lighter then steel by a lot of weight. Also Not sure on the funtional part of it. As you want the cape to drop out from the bottom/sides of it. Now it would work for a cool looking effect to actually get it to pop and stuff.

The cape stored in this compartment unless you make the entire backpack pop open will look like its either below or under the backpack.

TDK backpack is designed as part of his armor as well. It is connected to the chest piece I believe. I'd need to dig up some photos on this site but i'm sure there are some good ones of it.

Now i'm asuming this is for paintball? As a number of your posts are reguarding that sport. A black cape is a dead giveaway in a paintball game. For fun it be cool to have the black cape but a camo one would be better. if your playing out at night which i've done it be pretty cool but its hard to see in the first place with paint stained visor let alone you ninjaing your way around with a cape dragging behind you.

Re: TDK Backpack


Yeah, I've thought about a cape before in paintball, and gave it up a while ago. It's too easy to get tangled up, and you're right, it's a dead giveaway.

I think if I made a fiberglass one, I'd make two or three of them with different functions. One would solely be used for the "cover" idea, and the way I designed it the pack would completely break apart by spring hinges. Another would be for tools that are too big for my belt.

Before I had an idea for some kind of power pack, or battery pack, but I think I'd want that permanently in my suit. Probably in the shoulder blades. It would help with keeping my helmet functions up and running, and maybe even a GPS-type system.

This last one I'm posting, just because it looks great. Although, about this backpack, how can two objects contain one piece of cloth? I really don't see part of the cape between these ¨shoulders¨. Just how could the cape connect in the middle??

Re: TDK Backpack


These pics help, Dude. Thanks.

Do you think the pack is two pieces? It looks connected in the middle.

Re: TDK Backpack


Someone on another post said that there is NO foam latex on the TDK suit...they should take a look at his knee in the last pic. I didn't know carbon fiber mushed up like that...
